Community Safety Accreditation Scheme - Traffic Management
As part of the Police Reform Act 2002 police Chief Constables were given permission to grant a limited range of police powers to employees of non-police organisations who contribute towards community safety.
Beacon Security can provide officers with these powers under the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme, which includes traffic management.
In order to gain the accreditation a full audit of processes and systems is undertaken by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO). The scheme is fully managed and monitored by the police.
